PUBG Mobile India update: Battle Royale Game may join hands with Google for early release

PUBG Mobile India update: Amid a lot of speculations surrounding the relaunch of PUBG Mobile in India, here is another update. PUBG Mobile is expected to be associated with Google for the battle royal game’s early release in India, experts say.

The latest report comes few days after the company appointed Aneesh Aravind, who has worked for various companies including Tencent and has over 15 years of experience in the industry, as the country manager of PUBG Mobile India.

“PUBG Corporation is planning to associate themselves with Google because they require the right clients and image to receive approval from the Government and make a comeback in the country”, a popular tech expert said, adding that the company is probably in talks with the search engine giant to regain its lost reputation.

PUBG Mobile India might not launch until March 2021

A company employee had said that the PUBG might not launch in India until March 2021.

“Efforts from PUBG were made in the right earnest, but the situation is such that there has been no headwind or progress on the matter. We don’t see the game making a comeback in India for the next few months, at least not before March 2021. It’s unfortunate but everyone has to live with it,” a PUBG Corporation official was quoted as saying in a report by InsideSport.

Indian govt denies permission for PUBG launch

It was reported earlier this month that the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) had not given its approval to launch PUBG in India. “MeitY does not grant permission for starting of any websites / mobile apps / service. Accordingly, MeitY has not granted permission to PUBG / PUBG mobile India”, the ministry stated in a response to the RTI filed by MediaNama.

Also, a Press Information Bureau (PIB) spokesperson for MeitY had confirmed that PUBG Mobile India has not received a go ahead to re-start operations in India and that the PUBG registration of a India-based company called PUBG India does not necessarily mean anything.
